TV station employees have filed a lawsuit seeking unpaid overtime compensation as well as compensation for missed meal and rest breaks.  The suit claims that employees were ordered to misrepresent their time worked on their time cards by, for example, showing that they had taken an hour lunch break when they had not.  The suit also claims that employees were not timely paid when their employment ended and that they were not paid their vested vacation pay.

Kentucky law requires that employees be allowed a ten minute rest break for each four hours worked.  Kentucky law also requires that an employee by allowed a "reasonable" period for a meal break as near as possible to the middle of their shift; it is not required that the meal break be paid. 

Kentucky law defines "vested vacation pay" as an element of an employee's wages.
